Fantastic Mr. Fox

Fantastic Mr. Fox ★★★★★

Wes Anderson seems destined to have become a maker of animated films since in animation, he can have 100% control of every inch of his wonderfully over-designed frames.

This film feels entirely made out of corduroy.

There's a "Rebel Without a Cause" reference that made me gasp with joy.

There also seems to be a "Citizen Kane" reference.

This manages to be a pretty faithful adaptation of Dahl's book, but it's also stuffed with a ton of minute details. Someone calls someone a "wet sandwich". When everyone is drinking apple juice, Ash is drinking grape juice and it has stained his mouth. "You wrote a bad song, Petey!"

I really love this film.
